    5.0 - Excellent

    I travelled solo on the guided cycling tour Highlights of Holland by Barge. I booked as twinshare to be paired up with a same sex traveller but ended up having the cabin to myself, as the barge was only half full for this week. The food was always plentiful... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • How much cycling is there per day?

    Below you will find a summary of the ride distances:

    Day 1 Arrive Amsterdam, short cycle along Amstel River (20km)
    Day 2 Cycle through lake areas to Leiden (55km)
    Day 3 Cycle past Zandvoort ending at Haarlem (50km )
    Day 4 Cross North Sea canal by ferry, cycle to Alkmaar (50km)
    Day 5 Cycle or optional rest day (55km)
    Day 6 Cycle past windmills to Hoorn and Purmerend (45km)
    Day 7 Cycle along IJssel Lake en route to Amsterdam (50km)
    Day 8 Trip concludes Amsterdam

  • Can we bike half the daily recommended km (20 km a day instead of 40 km). Or do we have to decide in the morning that we will bike the whole day, the full 40 km?

    If you decide not to cycle the distance laid out for the day, you can hop in a cab (with bikes) and transport yourself to the meeting point with the barge, the cost for this will be your own. Another alternative would be to consider an e-bike, get the 40 Km done quicker.
